Our beach home is a stunning combination rarely found. Crystal Beach is old Florida - eclectic and friendly. A block from the community beach and 20 minutes to Honeymoon Island State Park Beach.
You can't help but be recharged in this magical spot.
We have a friendly community, a great yard, a beach at low tide, a private dock, and AMAZING views. See dolphins, manatees, sting-rays in the water. Watch Osprey feeding their babies in the nest. Great fishing. Once we had a bald eagle land in our yard and we always see Oscar, a heron, who loves sardines.
We have three large bedrooms. The master looks over the gulf and has sublime sunsets. The downstairs bedrooms have two beds each (one has a set of full sleep number beds and the other has two twins).
Build a little fire in the chiminea and watch the sunset during a romantic dinner on the patio on our Crate and Barrel outdoor dining table.
Walk for breakfast at Emily's or ride your bike to the best coffee shop ever in nearby Old Palm Harbor (Lulu's). This area is great for all kinds of diets and food needs. The Ozona Pig is a bike ride away for amazing bbq, as is Fireside Pizza. Ohana (a healthy Hawaii-inspired cafe complete with hula dancers) and Rawk Star Cafe (Raw, Vegan, Gluten free) are minutes by car.
Innisbrook golf resort is 5 minutes away. Movies are 7 minutes away. Clearwater Beach is 35 minutes.
We have two kayaks and 4+ bikes. You might enjoy renting a golf cart during your visit. Captain Charlie will take you out on our boat, schedule permitting, for a separate fee. There are tons of fishing charters and dolphin charters in the area, but frankly, fishing from our dock and watching dolphins from our dock is pretty special.
We were raised in Missouri and Boston. We never expected to fall in love with Florida, but then we never expected to find a little community like Crystal Beach. We go between this home and our farm full of rescued farm animals in North Carolina. The home is available a few rentals this year simply because our work-travel schedule is keeping us away longer than we anticipated and we know a home needs to feel love to stay healthy!
This is the coolest, eclectic community. We have a community beach, drive golf-carts for ice-cream, and bike to Dunedin on the Pinellas Trail.
Within a few miles you can rent a golf cart, a kayak, a paddle board, bikes, go to a top rated beach or boat to the island spoils for your own private beach.
Betsy and Company couldn't have been easier to work with. Everything was perfect and as advertised. There were kayaks, bikes, a golf cart, and a Publix less than a mile away. A short drive to Dunedin, Tarpon Springs, Clearwater, Innisbrook, etc. lots of sharing from previous renters, and we did the same to "pay it forward". Highly recommended!
We are about 40 minutes from Busch Gardens and 1 hr and 40 min from Disney. 35 min from Famous Clearwater Beach and 20 min from award-winning Honeymoon Island.
For an additional fee (schedule and tides permitting) a local captain can take you out into the gulf from our dock to look for dolphins or go to a pristine beach with boat only access.
Old downtown palm harbor has a ton of great, quaint bars and eateries. Lots of local seafood, bar-b-que, great coffee shops, icecream shops. Excellent gluten free and vegetarian options, too.
